  • I did post-partum with my 1st born. Are you on birth control yet? It took me 8 months to do something about the anxiety, finally I got on BC and it got rid of it. It was due to my pregnant hormones never returning to normal after the baby, and that's probably what's going on with you. Try and make an appt with your family doc or OB, good luck :)
